Islamic Studies was also incorporated into the school day. When I arrived, I was told after school we have Islamic Studies, and I might have to stay for hall duty, Getz said. The teachers had written assignments on the blackboard for classes like math and social studies. Islamic Studies was the last one the board said the kids were studying the Quran. The students were told to copy it into their planner, along with everything else. That gave me the impression that Islamic Studies was a subject like any other. Taxpayer funded Islamic school . If this were a christian school funded by taxpayer dollars the ACLU would be descending on it like locusts.
